Joan Baez - Baptism (1998) Retail CD
This is a pretentious work by one of the greatest folk singers of all time. It features Joan Baez reading the poetic works of others with a smattering of music thrown in. This CD is the epitome of conceit. People buy Joan Baez CDs because of her glorious singing voice, not for her poetry reading. As a conceptual work, the premise of the CD is intriguing, a melding of poetry and music, with the poetry read against a backdrop of music. It is intended to be evocative of the times in which we live, with the poetry extending the range of the music. In its execution, however, the premise is seriouslymore… flawed by Joan Baez's reading voice, as she drones on and on. No thespian she. While it is obvious that a great deal of thought went into the selection of both the poetry and the music, it is an ambitious venture which does not work. Stick to singing, Joan. That is your gift.
